12oz bottle into a Pint Glass

A- Pours solid black with a thin 1 finger tan head that doesn't last other than a nice thin coating on the top. Not much lacing other than some small spots.

S- Dark roasted malts with some nice sweet oatmeal and chocolate. Definitely some coffee in there with a slight nuttiness.

T- Just like it smells. Tons of roasted malts with a nice bittersweet dark chocolate. Nice fullness and flavor from the oats definitely some coffee in there.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a nice bitter finish but not bad.

What do you know, another beer from imperialking. Thanks Jeff!

A: The pour is a dark brown color with a solid tan colored head.

S: Plenty of dark chocolate and coffee aromas to this beer. The oatmeal provides a bit of a "cookie" note which is fantastic.

T: The nose pretty much clues you in on the taste: a lot of dark, somewhat bitter, chocolate along with a touch of coffee. The oatmeal gives the beer a real smoothness to the beer.

M: I love the mouthfeel of a good oatmeal stout. Medium in body with an almost silky feel on the tongue.

D: It was only a few months ago that I had just found out about this brewery, and now, I can't get enough of their beers. Another solid offering!

A- Cola brown on the pour with a small amount of head in spite of a vigourous pour. Sits dark as sin in the glass

S- Definite oatmeal in the nose with a good hint of chocolate towards the back.

T- Tons of basic oatmeal stout flavor with just enough chocolate to get the job done. Excellent job Tyranena!

M- Very smooth in the front with enough carbonation to leave you begging for more

O- A winner! A brewery I was afraid to try for fear of a let down but this is very impressive!

12oz bottle poured into a Killian's pint

A- Pours a deep brown with a 1 1/2 finger khaki head that recedes and stays at about 1/2 finger. Decent lacing hangs around. Nice looking beer.

S- Like an oatmeal stout on choco-coffe-roids. Oats coming though with a big hit of coffee followed up with some dark chocolate.

T- Dead on oatmeal stout followed up with a kick of bitter coffee and chocolate notes. Amazing.

M- Medium bodied and creamy. Coats the mouth and allows you to reflect on the taste.

O- A fine brew. Since I tried this last year it has been one of my favorite oatmeal stouts. I just wish it was year-round, that and Tyranena got more out to my area!
